Temporary suspension of the three-month CVO residual stock criterion

22 December 2020 - The three month period for inclusion in the residual stock has been suspended due to the current lockdown. For inclusion in the residual stock scheme (‘restantvoorraadregeling’), a Certificate of Conformity (CVO) must be issued after the vehicle's date of manufacture.


The requirement for the CVO to have been valid for at least 3 months after the date of issue before the type approval loses its validity, has been temporarily suspended. This concerns vehicles that cannot be sold once the type approval expires unless they have been included in the residual stock scheme. Exactly how long the measure will continue will depend on developments in the near future.
